  1. Download the newest version of xpadder

  2. After you download it, double click on the file to install it

  6. Now, find your gamepad's buttons. This should be done by looking at the gamepad itself. Once you've found them, click on each button to map it onto one of Xpadders controls.

Minimum system requirements

You should be able to get this game running on an older laptop with a Dual-Core Processor, 4 GB of ram, and integrated graphics. It may even work with 2GB ram if you have an old laptop or desktop. When it comes to operating systems however Windows XP is the only one that is supported.

Recommended system requirements

This means that there are no Mac OSX or Linux versions of this game unless you can run Windows but as far as I know they don't play games on those operating systems... Yet.

If the developers really wanted to make this game playable for people who have very low-end specs they could've at least supported Windows Vista or 7 because there are a ton of computers out there that can run it just fine.

Ultra-high-definition 4K resolution graphics experience

4K refers to one of two high-definition resolutions, both of which are slightly higher than the 1080p standard. 3840x2160 is considered 4K resolution; 4096x2160 is its counterpart with an even wider aspect ratio (more landscape and less portrait). If you have a monitor that's 4K compatible, the game's graphics are crisp, clear, and provide a more immersive experience.

Internet connection required for multiplayer mode and online features

This means that in order to play in a multiplayer mode you have to be online and in the event that you are disconnected from your router or modem mid-game it will pause the match until you connect again.

Online features such as uploading your score, rankings, screenshots, and videos can only be done while you're connected to PlayStation Network.


So there you have it. If you're looking to upgrade your PC anytime soon I would recommend getting at least an ATI Radeon HD 4850 (1GB GDDR3) or NVIDIA GeForce GTX 260 (512MB GDDR3) because that's what you'll need to play this game like how it's supposed to be played. It's true that you can get this game to work on lower-end systems, but it does not play like the console versions and has a lot of issues and bugs that should've been taken care of before release.
